The Perfect Food for the Afternoon Blues

Cucumber Angel
Got the afternoon blahs? Need a lift? Instead of knocking back a cup of joe; instead of breaking into the office vending machine for an artificial lift, reach for something that is loaded with the B vitamins … reach for a healthy carb that will provide a quick lift that will last for hours!
Reach for a cucumber!!! Peel it and eat it or … make a bowl of cucumber salad!
* 4 cucumbers, thinly sliced
* 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
* 1 cup white vinegar
* 1/2 cup water
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 1 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
Instructions: Toss your thinly cucumbers and onion in a large bowl. And then … Over a medium heat, combine the vinegar, water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and pour over the cucumber and onions. Stir in dill, cover, and refrigerate until cold. Really cold. Delish!

    Miss J, I have found that a nice cup of hot, black cherry tea does the trick for me. That or a small handful of cherries. Yum!

    Tony’s story touched my heart. I thought of children tossed into the garbage and someone had everyone come together to rescue them.
